Initially training as a lawyer and qualifying as a barrister, Jarvis moved into the media and internet sectors at an early stage, within both legal and business roles. He was one of the earliest legal and business specialists in the internet sector with America Online and AOL Europe (before and after the merger with Time Warner, becoming AOL Time Warner). In this role, Jarvis was involved in many developments in the internet sector during the 90s and noughties.
Following his time at AOL, Jarvis was recruited in 2004 by the founders of what became PartyGaming. Jarvis has also co-founded other businesses in the online and technology sectors including Odobo (a HTML5 games developer platform) and Rockchain (a crypto-advisory firm).
He has also acted as an advisor to a family office with a wide range of business, lobbying and philanthropic projects on an international basis.
